The Center's position is the most influental in the game of basketball. The need for a dominate presence on the boards is huge as for defense and easy points inside. Here's the top 5:
Oden is the No.1 pick from the 2007 draft, who has many health problems but is a very talented big man that draws comparisons to such legendary centers. He's the best defensive player, shot blocker and also presence from the entire class.
On top of that, Greg is a monster on the boards that is such a presence in there and has a nice post up game,which features effective hook shots with either hand and even a little jump shot. He attracts double teams and is most accurate free throw shooter.
His ability to take over and impact a game without scoring a single point,makes him extremely valuable who's so,so productive.He's only 22 and can overcome those injuries.
Noah can be described with these words: energetic, passionate and worker. His passion and energy are second to none, that's for sure. His rebounding skills are on the top of this list,w ho's got the length that makes him a good presence on defense
He's got underrated offense and he's a clutch player who came from college as a winner thanks to the 2 championships that he won. He comes up with huge games and ranks high on many lists. His numbers will go down now that Chicago has a much better team
But can the Bulls go far with Noah? Definitely not.
Horford,came as a winner and is one in the pros too. He won 2 titles as the starting center on the both Florida Gators teams that won the highest honor in the NCAA Division. He's a good old school defender and is a monster on the boards
However, his biggest strength is definitely his offense. His low post game, by far, tops anyone on the list as he can hurt teams in many ways. He's got a phenomenal shot from 16-20 feet that helps Atlanta in order to strech the defense
He's also on his way to be an All-Star reserve yet again.
Marc Gasol is not so known as his brother Pau but he's one physical yet complete center who isn't a Dirk-type of player like most European bigs are. This one is a expectation. He's a good defender, however, he makes impact with his offensive abilities.
He can pass the ball well, is a good scorer, who's not afraid from anyone, and knows how to use his skills to be effective. His game has dropped a little bit but can he put big numbers, his future will be so much better.
Hawes is the best shooting center from the draft but he needs more than shooting to catch up with the rest of the group.
